30 September 2019: Malt Shovel has announced the appointment of Dave Mullins as the Head Brewer for their new South Townsville craft brewery Tiny Mountain.
Chris Sheehan, from Malt Shovel’s Eumundi Brewery was in Townsville to make the announcement today.
“Dave has been working with us at Malt Shovel and Lion for 10 years in a range of roles across the business including time with XXXX in Brisbane, Tooheys in Lidcombe, and Malt Shovel in Camperdown,” Sheehan said.
“As our Production Brewer in Sydney Dave was a key part of the Malt Shovel gold medal winning team in 2018 World Beer Cup and took home a gold, silver and bronze in the 2018 Australian International Beer Awards.
“Dave is an experienced and innovative brewer who will create exceptional beers, and we are delighted to have him head up brewing here in north Queensland.”
Mr Mullins has moved his young family to Townsville and is looking forward to working on a unique range of beers.
“As a family we are excited to have made the move to Townsville. My Dad grew up in the Burdekin and my Mum grew up in Cairns so I know this is a perfect part of the world to raise a family,” Mullins said.
“I started my brewing career as a home brewer, so I am keen to get to know some of the local home brewers and beer lovers here, especially the ones who have helped us with taste testing.
“I look forward to working with local clubs and hotels to create a unique range of refreshing beers for North and Far North Queensland, that will be available fresh from the tanks in the Tiny Mountain Brewery and wholesale.
“Our venue will be a family friendly place where people can come to enjoy our well-crafted beers brewed on site and play games in the beer garden.
“I’ve always enjoyed the history and stories behind beer and sharing my passion for brewing with our customers.”
The construction phase is nearing completion and the Tiny Mountain Brewery is expected to be open by December. Hospitality positions will be advertised in the coming months.
